Background Information 
Professional profile:

Steve Payne qualified from the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine, London, in 1977 and trained in general surgery, around St. Mary's Hospitals in Paddington, before switching to urology in 1983. Steve completed his Masters in Surgery at the Institute of Urology, London, and then finished his urological training in Portsmouth before coming to Manchester. He has been a consultant urological surgeon to the Central Manchester Hospitals since 1988.

Apart from the management of general urological problems, the treatment of complex andrological problems, male-factor infertility, surgical correction of Peyronie’s disease, penile prosthetic surgery and urethral reconstruction are Mr. Payne’s especial sub-specialist interests for which he attracts region-wide referrals on an NHS basis. Having had a strong relationship with Manchester Fertility Services for more than 20 years, he provides a complete range of treatment for male factor infertility, from reconstructive surgery, including vasectomy reversal, to surgical sperm retrieval techniques including epididymal sperm aspiration, testicular sperm extraction and micro-dissection TeSE.

Steve is national audit lead for the British Association of Genito-urinary Reconstructive Surgeons (BAGURS), shadow Chairman of the Joint Surgical Colleges Fellowship Exam in Urology (JSCFE) and a past chairman of the Intercollegiate Examination Board in Urology, the body responsible for setting standards of knowledge for Consultant Practice and completion of the FRCS(Urol) exam. He was, until very recently, Treasurer of the British Association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS), a Trustee of the BAUS charity and a member of its Executive Committee. In the past he has been a member of the committee for the BAUS section of Andrology and Reconstructive Urology and has lectured widely on andrological and reconstructive topics.

Mr. Payne is keen on all sports, wine and gardening. He also likes to try his hand at making furniture when time permits!
